Background and Important Information

I picked up this product at a local store for £0.95. I was not sent this sample in return for a review, nor am I being paid or sponsored for this review. This review is my honest opinion.

I do quite a lot of walking, as a result, I have developed hard skin and calluses on parts of my feet where I have previously had blisters. The areas that I was looking to target with this product were on my heels, on the middle joints of my big toes and on the balls of my feet under my pinkie toes.

This review is written after using this product once, for the first time.

How I Used This Foot Pack

I used this product as directed on the packaging (pictured below).

Before using the product, I soaked my feet for 15 minutes in hot water with Radox Muscle Soak Bath Salts. I then used a pumice stone to exfoliate the hard skin on my feet, before returning them to the water to soak for a further 5 minutes.

I patted them softly with a towel (rather than rubbing them) and made sure that they were definitely dry before I opened the package containing the boots.

The boots come in the packaging joined together, I used scissors to separate them. When I put my feet in the boots, I used my hands to rub the boots onto my skin, to allow the moisturizer on the inside to cover all of my feet and in between my toes.

I wore the boots for 20 minutes and was able to pass the time by reading a book. Once I removed the boots I used my hands to massage the moisturizer left on my feet into the skin.

Results

I was blown away by the positive results that I got from using this product.

My feet were immediately silky soft on the tops, arches and even between the toes. The tough areas of my feet were noticeably smoother and softer.

The silky feeling on my feet lasted a full 24 hours until the next time I soaked them in hot water and bath salts. Two days after using this product my heels were still noticeably much softer and smoother, with the hard skin drastically reduced. The calluses by my pinkie toes were almost gone completely. The calluses on my big toes were still quite hard, but not as hard as they were before I used the product. I feel confident that continual use of this product would reduce (and possibly eliminate entirely) my problem areas.

Important Points to Note

The only drawback that I found with this product was that there is no way to seal the boots at the top to stop them from slipping off. To compensate, I used a small piece of sellotape to affix the boot to itself to avoid it from slipping off. This worked very well. However, it should be noted that without the tape I would not have been able to walk about in these, and they would have slipped off.

However, with the tape in place, I was able to move around in them normally, and walked short distances inside my apartment without slipping or feeling unsafe in my movement. They did not feel uncomfortable or unpleasant at any point during the process. The moisturizer was quite cool and refreshing.

Conclusion

I love this foot pack. It works perfectly and makes my feet feel soft and refreshed after being on them all day, and doing lots of walking. It makes my skin much softer and has proven, after only one use, to reduce my hard skin.

For the price that I have seen them available, they are a must-have as part of your weekly routine. I highly recommend them and I will definitely be using this product again soon!
